“A hearty, healthy way to get your oatmeal. Has a consistency similar to brown rice. Pinhead oats can usually be found in the flour section of your grocery. I usually start the recipe while I am making coffee, and then let it simmer while I shower and get ready for work. By the time I am done with that, I have a nice hot, hearty breakfast waiting for me.”
